MJ Survives Flu

Michael Jackson was allowed to go home February 16th after spending the night at a local hospital for treatment of the flu.

“Mr. Jackson continues to be in stable condition and remains under observation at this time. He continues to need care for some persistent viral symptoms but, otherwise, he’s in good spirits,” Dr. Todd Bailey, medical director of emergency services at Marian Medical Center, said at a press conference.

Jury selection in MJ’s child molestation trial was postponed for a week after the pop star fell ill on his way to court.

Judge Rodney Melville told potential jurors about MJ’s illness and said jury selection would resume February 22nd.

Meanwhile, attorneys were expected to use the time to discuss unspecified motions.

Jackson was in court the day before as attorneys began the painstaking process of selecting 12 jurors and eight alternates from 242 candidates based on answers to a 41-question, eight-page survey.

MJ’s lawyers announced that day they may call celebrities to the witness stand including Diana Ross, Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder, Backstreet Boy Nick Carter and his younger brother, Aaron Carter.

Actor Corey Feldman, who said in a recent interview that Jackson showed him nude pictures when he was in his early teens, has been subpoenaed by prosecutors.

MJ is accused of molesting and giving alcohol to a 13-year-old cancer patient who visited Neverland Ranch.
